Lessons I’ve Learned from My Cats

Hey, guys, it’s been a while since I write anything about cats or my cat. Since I just celebrated my Pepper’s birthday, I am going to write something about cats.

I have Pepper four years ago from a friend. She was so tiny then and was afraid of humans. I told my friend that I wanted to have a black cat and it happens that his cat was pregnant. The fact is I thought I was going to have Pepper for free because I’d rather want to save a cat’s life by providing a home for those in need than buying cats. However, my friend said that Pepper is for sale, I have no choice, I wanted to have a black cat and Pepper is so cute. Therefore, I paid the amount and took Pepper home (I have no regrets).

Four years from now she is celebrating her fourth birthday, and I love her more than anything else in this world. By the way, I have another cat his name is Cayenne I rescued him from the streets. Since having cats, I have learned to love them, and I have learned some lessons that I will not learn from other or from people.

Unconditional love

The first thing I learned from my cats is unconditional love. If you ask people who take care of their animals WELL, they surely will agree that their pets teach them to love with nothing in return. Even if they don’t speak we love them and despite not knowing if they love us back we continue to show love to them because that’s what it’s supposed to be.

Patience

Let’s all admit this patience is one habit or behavior that is difficult to cultivate. We easily get angry, we want things to happen instantly, or we can’t wait for the answer. But having cats I learned to be patient all the time. When my cats don’t like the food I give them I patiently wait until they decide that they want it (Cats are sometimes picky when it comes to food).

Be Yourself

Yes, this is one of the best things I’ve learned from my cats. They do what they want, they don’t care how silly they are, and they don’t care about what others are doing or saying (probably because they don’t understand human language?) However, looking at my cats I love to be like them, carefree and 100% true to themselves.

Appreciate the Moment

I’m not sure if this is a bad or good thing, but cats will only give you sometimes short attention. When I say short, it’s like “you can touch me for five seconds then leave. If not I’ll murder you.” Therefore, I learn to appreciate the moments in my life, because like the attention your cats give you life also is not permanent. Moments will soon fade away that is why you have to appreciate it.

I hope that this will encourage you to adopt a cat or a dog or take the time to be kind to animals.

PS. I am teaching them to respond to the word “Come,” and trying to make them love the outdoors.
